Bernie Sanders Thinks Murderers And Rapists In Prison Should Be Able To Vote (VIDEO)

Bernie Sanders did a town hall event with FOX News this week. The event had a lot of crazy left-wing moments but one in particular stood out.

Bernie was asked about prisoners and voting and defended the idea of even allowing rapists and murderers to vote.

Sanders: Murderers Shouldn’t Lose Voting Rights Because They Are ‘Paying the Price’ in Prison

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Monday said murderers and rapists shouldn’t lose their voting rights because they are already “paying the price” in prison.

Sanders participated in a Fox News town hall in Bethlehem, Pa., where he was asked by host Martha MacCallum whether he believed rapists and murderers should have the right to vote from prison.

“Good question. In my state, I recently researched this. It turns out that in our Constitution in the state of Vermont for hundreds of years everybody has the right to vote, okay?” Sanders said. “I think you make this division, if somebody does something terrible, they’re a rapist or a murderer we send them away.

Sometimes we send them away for life, but I also think that integral to who we are as Americans no matter what kind of terrible things you did, you’re paying the price. Maybe you’re in jail for the rest of your life, but you have the right to vote.”

Sanders then shifted his response to talking about the “cowardly Republican governors” and how he believes they are trying to “suppress the vote,” saying they are making it harder for people of color, poor people, and young people to vote. He then said that he doesn’t like it when politicians start pointing to different crimes and using them to keep people from voting.

Bernie was also asked about housing for illegals at the border and got flamed by lefties for his response.
